We offer a variety of custom professional development training in 3D printing, Arduino, wearable tech, and more. We offer consulting services at your site to train you on your equipment so that you know exactly what you are doing, and occasional classes with our collaborators.
We teach the following classes online, hosted by LERN Network (click one of the links below for more information):
- Introduction to 3D Printing
- Prototyping with Maker Electronics
We also authored the following course for Lynda.com: Additive Manufacturing: Optimizing 3D Prints.
On October 25, we will be teaching classes at the LA Cleantech Incubator (LACI) in downtown LA: Intro to wearable tech for fashion applications at noon, and Introduction to 3D printing at 6PM.
Custom in-person training:
We offer a variety of custom training in 3D printing, Arduino, wearable tech, and more. We can work with you to develop custom professional development for your staff, or we can start with one of the following:
Intro to 3D Printing (1 session, 3 hours)
This course covers the basics of 3D printing workflow for consumer-level 3D printers. We will walk through several free or open source 3D computer aided design (CAD) programs, and teach you about software options to take CAD files and turn them into the types of files that are used by common 3D printers.
3D Printed Science Projects (1 session, 3 hours)
Our new book, “3D Printed Science Projects,” uses the OpenSCAD programming language to develop 3D printable models. This class walks through the process of using the free, open source OpenSCAD program, and then goes through how to use and modify each of the models in the book. Models discussed: Math functions, Light and other waves, Gravity, Airfoils, Simple Machines, Plants and Their Ecosystems, Molecules and Trusses. The models are available open source for noncommercial purposes.
We also can provide training in various technologies needed by teachers coaching robotics teams or starting electronics or coding classes.
